  • IAUS362: The predictive power of computational astrophysics as a discovery tool (June 8-12, 2020)

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce IAU Symposium 362, "The predictive power of computational astrophysics as a discovery tool", which will be held in Chamonix, France, June 8-12 2020. Now, the registration is open!

Website: http://iaus362.astro.unistra.fr/IAUS362.html

Important Dates:
- Travel grant application deadline: December 31, 2019
- Early registration deadline: January 31, 2020
- Abstract submission for talks and registration deadline: April 15, 2020
- Abstract submission for posters deadline: May 1, 2020

Scientific Rationale:
A new paradigm for scientific discovery through computational tools is rapidly pervading every aspect of research in astronomy. This Symposium aims to galvanize on-going developments in computational astrophysics by bringing together astronomers in different fields to share their knowledge and approaches to computational astrophysics.

Computational astrophysics combines modern computational methods, novel hardware designs, advanced algorithms, original software implementations and associated technologies to discover new phenomena, and to make predictions in astronomy. It is therefore important to trace out the contour of the meeting.

The Symposium will focus on computational methods applied to speed up and broaden the scope of scientific studies, such as finding trends from observational data, high performance computing, automated search algorithms, and model predictability. The meeting will bring together experts to discuss a palette of challenging informational and technical developments, including hardware and software but always focused on astronomical applications. Special attention will be given to numerical integration schemes and emergent behavior (e.g., Artificial Intelligence methods). These topics are rather novel for astronomy and will likely play a major role for handling large data sets and complex analysis pipelines.

Key topics:
- Strong gravity: accretion disks, jets, BH- & NS binaries, gravitational waves
- Large-scale structure, galaxy formation and evolution
- Star formation and the interstellar medium
- Stellar evolution, including supernovae and common-envelope binaries
- Solar and exo-planet systems
- New computational tools and data mining

  • Workshop TASC6/KASC13

We are pleased to announce the TASC6/KASC13 workshop to be held in Leuven, Belgium between 13-17 July 2020. 

"ASTEROSEISMOLOGY IN THE ERA OF SURVEYS FROM SPACE AND THE GROUND: STARS, PLANETS, AND THE MILKY WAY"

Scientific Rationale
Asteroseismology is a young and rapidly developing field in stellar astrophysics. It enables efficient probes of stellar interiors and
provides critical input to many fields in contemporary astrophysics. Being very sensitive to the total time span and precision of
individual stellar brightness measurements, observational asteroseismology has experienced significant boosts with the launch of
space-missions such as CoRoT, Kepler/K2, and TESS. The interior macro- and micro-physics are being probed with unprecedented precision for isolated stars, as well as small- to intermediate-sized stellar populations across the entire HR-diagram. Powerful synergies between asteroseismology and fields such as binary stars, exoplanets, clusters, galactic archeology, are emerging fast. In this joint 6th/13th in a series of TASC/KASC workshops, we aim to put asteroseismology in a wider context, reaching out to other fields in astrophysics, focusing on the above synergies with specific attention to joint exploitation of large-scale space- and ground-based surveys. We will celebrate the 10th anniversary of "Kepler Asteroseismology in Action" started during KASC3 at Aarhus University, where Kepler asteroseismology was put into practice for the first time, opening a new horizon for observational asteroseismology as we know it today.
KASC6/TASC13 will highlight the first results emerging from the full-sky, double-hemisphere TESS data exploration, in synergy with
other and complementary large-scale surveys. The TASC6/KASC13 workshop will take place from 13-17 July 2020 at KU Leuven, Belgium - one of the most active asteroseismic centres in Europe - and the scientific programme covers a broad range of research topics.

  • GrACo IV First Announcement

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

IV Reunión Argentino-Brasileña de Gravitación, Astrofísica y Cosmología

Lugar y fecha: Buenos Aires, Argentina, 22 - 24 April, 2020

We are pleased to announce the IV Argentine-Brazilian Meeting on Gravitation, Astrophysics and Cosmology (GrACo IV), to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from April 22 to 24, 2020.

RATIONALE

Research on Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology in Argentina and Brazil has reached a substantial degree of development. The main goal of the GrACo series of meetings is to stimulate and reinforce the collaboration between these two well-established scientific communities with the intention to undertake long-term joint research programs and to continue fostering the current collaborations.

The first meeting was held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, in October 2011; the second meeting was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in April 2014; the third meeting was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in April 2016. The balance of participation between Brazilians and Argentinians are a proof of the importance and the support from both scientific communities to this series of meeting, encompassing a wide range of topics, that offered a complete panorama of the research lines of both communities. The organization of the fourth meeting of the GrACo series aims at strengthening the links between both communities, to continue fostering the effort for long-term collaborations, by fully involving a larger number of researchers and students in the discussions. It would be enough free time to encourage interaction and discussion between the participants which are very welcome to present their current researchs.

The meeting will include invited talk by well-known specialists on topics of particular relevance and contributed talks, together with contributed posters. The list of invited speakers is available at the website of the conference: www.iafe.uba.ar/graco4

IMPORTANT DATES

Registration will open from December 2nd, 2019 to February 29th, 2020. The deadline for abstract submission will be March 15th, 2020.

REGISTRATION FEE

The registration fee is USD 50. For graduate students, the fee is USD 25. It should be paid before March 15th, 2020. The payment instructions are explained in the website.

A limited amount of funding will be available for supporting the participation of students and doctoral fellows. To apply for these funds, please send an e-mail to graco4@iafe.uba.ar., before February 15th, 2020, briefly explaining (up to 200 words) your interest on the meeting and the reasons for your request, please also attached your CV.


More information on the meeting is available at the conference website: www.iafe.uba.ar./graco4 . Do not hesitate to contact us for any question through the e-mail address: graco4@iafe.uba.ar.

  • 43rd International School for Young Astronomers in San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico. Registration open.

The 43rd International School for Young Astronomers, ISYA2020Mex, will take place in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico, from the 8th to the 26th of June, 2020. The International School for Young Astronomers (ISYA) is a long-tradition project of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), nowadays also co-sponsored by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (NASL) through the Office for Young Astronomers (OYA). The 43rd school is co-organized by the OYA, the Mesoamerican Center for Theoretical Physics (MCTP), and the Autonomous University of Chiapas, Mexico.

ISYAs are three-week international graduate schools for regions where students have less opportunity to be directly exposed to the full extent of up-to-date astrophysics. They have the purpose of broadening the young students' perspective from international lecturers with up-to-date astrophysics, both on theory and observations. This three-week school will be also beneficial for the academic exchanges within countries, in particular in America.

Students and young professionals within a broad range of education and experience, from senior undergraduate to doctoral level, are welcome to the ISYA 2020 in Mexico. Preference will be given to students in their early career, MSc/PhDs. Priority will be given to applicants from the American Continent.

Acceptance to the school includes a studentship that covers transportation to San Cristóbal de las Casas and back to the students´ home location, and full boarding at the ISYA. All selected students are expected to commit 100% of their time to the three-week long program and participate in all scheduled activities.
